ECU students and faculty rally against HB2

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – The fallout from HB2 continues as more groups raise their voices in protest.

Around 100 students and faculty joined other community members on Wednesday to march from College Hill to the ECU mall. They did it in efforts to bring attention to HB2, a law many considered unneeded.

Some people marching told 9 On Your Side, the government does not know its citizens.

Uriah Ward, a marcher, said, “North Carolina is not as backwards as they would like us to believe or for us to be. We are a state that does support our trans brothers and sisters. It does support the LGBT community.”

This won’t be the end of efforts to repeal the new law. One group hopes to convince the Greenville City Council at their next meeting to repeal HB2.
